Pod Nod overnight marine adventures return this summer to The Whale Museum. These popular “pajama party” sleepovers are geared for children ages 6 to 11 and will be held on the following Fridays: July 12, Aug. 2 and Aug. 23. Pod Nods are led by museum educators with assistance from other adult professionals. Youth participants will learn to value whales and their environment through art projects, science labs, games, the traditional flashlight tour of the exhibit hall and a bedtime movie. Museum staff promise a high adult/child ratio and a whale of a good time.
Participants will engage in crafts, activities, storytelling and museum exploration as they learn about local marine mammal neighbors living in the Salish Sea. Each Pod Nod will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Friday with pickup the next morning at 8:30 a.m. A bedtime snack and breakfast are included.
The cost per Pod Nod is $44 for children/grandchildren of whale museum members. The cost for non-members is $49 per Pod Nod. A limited number of scholarships are available. Preregistration is required at least two days in advance of Pod Nod dates to ensure a great experience for the Pod Nodders as well as a high adul-to-child ratio. Call The Whale Museum at 360-378-4710, ext. 30 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Registration materials are available at www.whalemuseum.org/products/pod-nods.
